Coco Gauff vs Martina Trevisan preview
Teenager Cori ‘Coco’ Gauff pulled off a major upset in the first round of Roland Garros 2020, knocking out No. 9 seed Johanna Konta in straight sets. Making her debut in Paris, the 16-year-old announced herself at the tournament with a 6-3, 6-3 win.
The American youngster was knocked out in the first and second rounds at the US Open and the Italian Open respectively over the last month. But Gauff seems to have put those performances behind her, bringing all of her considerable talent and focus to Roland Garros.
Gauff had a phenomenal Grand Slam debut at Wimbledon last year, where she made it to the fourth round. She followed that up with another Round of 16 appearance at this year's Australian Open.
The American has an overall win-loss record of 8-4 in Grand Slams at the moment, which is incredible for someone of her age.
Qualifier Martina Trevisan also produced a solid performance in the first round against Camila Giorgi, before the latter retired midway through the second set. This is Trevisan's maiden appearance in the main draw at Roland Garros.
The Italian lost the first set in the opening round of the French Open qualifiers, but has not lost a single set since.

Coco Gauff vs Martina Trevisan prediction
Coco Gauff's accurate first serve is one of her biggest weapons. She won 73% of her first-serve points and 59% of her second-serve points against Konta.
Both her forehand and backhand wings are also very consistent. The 16-year-old is an exciting all-round player, and is particularly good in the pressure moments.
Martina Trevisan, meanwhile, has a phenomenal backhand herself. The southpaw can easily find the corners of the court with her two-hander, and can generate serious power on it.
Her return can also be difficult to maneuver around, particularly since it comes in deep at a good pace. This match is likely to be a close encounter, but Gauff's big-match temperament might sway the result in her favor.
Prediction: Coco Gauff to win in three sets.
